Extractions/Oral Surgery

Extractions or oral surgery is a standard treatment that is usually fairly straightforward. Treatment of this kind is performed carefully by a specially trained professional, so you can return to eating, drinking and smiling without worry.

You might have tooth decay or an impacted wisdom tooth causing you pain; this is when oral surgery might be the best option for you. If you’re anxious, you can be offered sedation as well as an anaesthetic to get you through your treatment.

Just had an infected tooth extracted by Lucinda jukes and can’t praise her enough, her and her dental nurse are so lovely and gentle and kind and put me at ease after years of fear, Also special mention to Joanne the receptionist who is always very kind and helpful, 5 stars from me.

Just had my wisdom tooth out tonight! As an extremely nervous patient I was put at ease and not one bit of the experience was uncomfortable! I didn’t believe her when she said it was out! 10/10 from me!

How can I get a tooth extracted?

You should only be considering tooth extraction once you’ve spoken to a professional who can offer you a comprehensive treatment plan after a thorough assessment of your smile. Never attempt to remove a tooth yourself.

How long does it take to recover from a tooth extraction?

You should rest up for at least 48-72 hours after tooth extraction. The treatment area needs time to clot, so you should just try to relax for a day or two after surgery. You definitely should not undertake any physical exercise. You can probably return to normal daily activities after around 72 hours, depending on the intensity of your surgery.

How soon can I eat after a tooth extraction?

You should eat anything solid for 24 hours after your tooth extraction. Only try to eat soft foods to give your smile the best chance at healing.

How will I know when my gums have started to heal after an extraction?

After around 7-10 days, your gums will have begun to heal, and the opening left behind should have started to close. You shouldn’t still be experiencing any swelling or pain at this point, so if this is the case, you should give us a call, and we can check up on your progress and see what we can do to alleviate your pain.

What are the complications of getting a tooth removed?

The only complication you should be concerned about is the dry socket. A dry socket occurs when the blood clot doesn’t form at the extraction site when it should. You can avoid the discomfort of a dry socket with antiseptic medications, antibacterial mouthwashes and other things prescribed to you by your doctor or us.
